A teenager caught carrying £2,000 worth of heroin and crack cocaine in Norwich has been arrested.

The 16-year-old was detained in the Freeman Square area of the city following a stop and search by officers yesterday afternoon.

He has since been charged with possession to supply heroin and crack cocaine and was remanded in custody.

He is due to appear in court this morning.

Norwich police said on Twitter: “Following a positive stop-search (and a very long shift!) the Neighbourhood Policing Team have charged and remanded a male who had cash and £1500-£2000 worth of heroin and crack on him. #OpGravity #CountyLines #NPT #PC833.”

The teen was arrested at about 12.20pm.

Operation Gravity was launched by Norfolk Police in December 2016 in response to an increase in violent crime associated with Class A drug dealing.
